 MY FIELD TRIP....
to Historic Edgefield, SC


They have a GREAT Town Square...


I learned the history of pottery making...



He even collects his own clay...


Then we left his shop....
and on to the Blacksmith...


She had a lot of pretty art work there...


This place has been around since 1917...
(that's the year my Great Grandmother was born!)


Then we went to see the carpenter...
He showed us tools used in the 1800's


He knew the history of the town really well.
And his grandfather, dad, children, and
grandchildren all know this skill...



Mom says I can start with a bar of soap!

But you want to know what this
town is also known for.....


TURKEYS


TURKEYS...


AND MORE TURKEYS....


HUGE TURKEYS!

THEY'RE EVERYWHERE !!!

I would come here again!
There's ALOT more to learn about this town...

And I missed a few pictures of other turkeys.

Renaissance Festival, Huntersville, NC

I love traveling around
to see new things...

Look at where 
I went now....


The Renaissance Festival

I'm studying the
Renaissance now in school too...


One of my favorites was the jousting...



Then they battled to the death with swords!


My knight won...
Hooray!!!



Leonardo da Vinci created 
a great flying machine...



I got to see the King and Queen up close...


Then I took a tour of the Dungeon...
This is where they tortured people...



Do you see the orbs by
The Head Crusher...?


They move....


There was alot here to see...


And the place looked so cute...


There were so many friends here too...

Do you see another orb?
(It's by the statue's hat.)

GHOST TOURS ARE AWESOME...

SAVANNAH, GA

My second time here at this city....
and I LOVED IT...

but note to self:  
DO NOT LIVE HERE
HAUNTED AREA

My paranormal education has
officially begun... here's what I saw.

First stop...
THE PIRATE HOUSE...
People say they've been in here.
And heard from Captain Flint say
"MORE RUM"

We rode past the
HENRY HOUSE...
And I thought I saw a mouth 
and an eye starring at me...

The Cemetery
Still today,
no cure for "yellow fever"
and I do not want to catch it.

And people were sometimes
buried alive.  Scratches were found
inside the coffins.  Because the last 
stage of yellow fever is a coma.
 So they started tying a 
string to a finger, attached to a bell.
If the grave digger heard the bell, 
he'd dig up the person.


We were in a warehouse
that always has ghost activity.

We were even allowed to 
try our own ghost hunt.

MY FIRST ONE
with an electronic device
that will light up when there's a
spirit nearby.

 I didn't find any this time....


The locals can give reports
of seeing or hearing things just about
anywhere in this city.

This tour had so many great
ghostly stories to share...

Everyone should come aboard
this trolley for a great experience.

I LOVE SAVANNAH

 Dragon's Watering Hole

and....
A Dragon's Arena

Now I'm off to hit some waves....

Hilton Head, SC

Home of the 
Baynard Ruins

Here we are.... on our way!

And we've arrived!

Here's the bottom level of
Captain Jack's Mansion...

Or what's left of it!

Nobody's home....

Click below to read the history
of this place....

Here's what I saw through the window...

There was ALOT of shells
 used to make these walls...

There were slaves quarters here 
and a bunch of cotton fields
for this plantation.

They have samples out for you to touch.

Another little site to look at.
